President's Corner - March 2016 

Thank you to everyone who submitted a project or proposal to this year’s conference. I can’t tell you how excited I am at the overall quality of this year’s workshops, new media projects, scripts, screenings, and papers & panels. August will be an exciting and productive time for all of us!

 

In other news, last month the UFVA board held its first-ever retreat, in conjunction with our regular mid-year meeting. A professional consultant aided us in evaluating the past and present achievements of the organization and planning for future initiatives.

 

Our discussion of the mission, value, and importance of UFVA emphasized that at the heart of the organization is a commitment to teaching and learning by a community of artists, scholars, and administrators engaged in the continual evolution of cinema and related media while working toward the protection and enhancement of freedom of expression. To achieve this mission, the UFVA board identified four areas of focus: 1) organizational process (including accountability/follow-through, governance, marketing, and outreach); 2) resources (people and money to achieve professionalization and sustainability); 3) activities (enterprises that engage and strengthen community and impact, such as the conference, the Journal of Film & Video, and the website); and 4) community (diversity & inclusion, involved memberships, and defining/quantifying/communicating the value provided by UFVA). Some of these areas overlap, but all are crucial for the future of the organization.

You’ll be hearing more details about the retreat at this year’s membership meeting in August. I hope to see you all in Las Vegas!

Sincerely,

Francisco Menendez

UFVA President, 2014-2016

President's Corner

July 1, 2014

And here we are, about one month away from our conference in Montana. I look forward to seeing many of you there. It promises to be a great meeting.

In the meantime, our annual elections are upon us. This year we have people, both new and old Board members, running for a variety of offices. I like the idea of new blood and the incoming president – Francisco Menendez, from UNLV – will need the same amount of help that I have been getting from the board, perhaps even more because there will be a lot of initiatives that have only begun to get going that will need your help.
